Alternative to Vista or Cruz?

I'm looking for a bit of advice please!
I'm expecting my first baby and thinking of getting either an Uppababy Vista or Cruz. They both appeal because I need to be able to vary the handlebar height (DH much much taller!!) and want a front/rear facing seat and as big a basket as possible!!
Does anyone have any recommendations of other models that would meet these criteria? Or any experience that might help me in what is turning into a bit of a dilemma?!
Thanks in advance smile

We looked at both too, and went with the Vista. It's heavier, but I'm glad we had the bigger wheels. It's been brilliant!

When are you due? The baby jogger Versa gt is being discontinued but is kind of midway between the cruz and uppababy - compact fold like the cruz but better able to cope off road and heavy like the vista. Massive basket. It's being replaced with the premiere at some point this year - don't know what that is like.

I like my friend's cruz but the wheels are a bit rattly.

I saw this in Active and thought it was a name thread! grin

I'll go now.

We have the Vista, I would highly recommend it! Enormous shopping basket, very sturdy and perfect for short arse me and lanky DH smile

I have a 2015 cruz and LOVE it but if there was any possibility of another baby I would have probably gone with the vista. I'm definitely on my last baby so I didn't have to consider the possibility of a double in the future. I was also swayed by the smaller foot print as I don't do much off reading apart from flat grass and the like.

I have the vista and I love it. No regrets whatsoever.

Thanks for all your responses! (Sorry for delay in replying...I posted this message then disappeared on a much needed week away!!)
I'm definitely sold on the Vista...now time to shop around for a bargain winkthanks again!

A slight dissenting voice - I have the latest Vista and I kinda wish I'd gone with the Cruz as the back wheels are so wide. It can make doorways or navigating in some shops/cafes/etc very tricky. It's also heavy and doesn't fold down particularly well. On the plus side the basket is huge and it works well off road (and seems comfy for my ds).

Armadillo flip; excellent for couples of "varying heights" wink
